The Keewaydin Club 1905-1922

The Keewaydin Club functioned as a hunting and fishing camp. Creelman's appointment as director marked the transformation into a guest camp with fishing and away from hunting more of a family operation than the man's club it had been.

Chessman Kittredge, a member of the Keewaydin board, would later adopt the name for a school and guest camp he opened in Naples, Florida in 1936. It closed in 1995.
